Same Old, Same Old (Stress Less 2015)


Are you tired of New Years Resolution posts yet?

This year I decided not to make resolutions. It's not that I have nothing to accomplish, I have a ton of things on my to-do list, but I don't want to set myself up for disappointment. Last year, I made a ton of resolutions and life simply got in the way. This coming year I don't want to have to re-count the excuses at the end. I want to be able to look back at all that I accomplished and not at a list with fewer check marks than I expected.

I have clear-set, long-term goals for 2015, but I think adding on to that would be a bit too much. That being said, here are the easy things I would like to do. I stayed focused on the little things and those that matter most. Though they are not on a clearly quantifiable and itemized list, I think they are attainable without putting much pressure on my daily life:

  • (maybe) do some traveling - especially road trips
  • (maybe) read some books
  • (seriously) make good memories
  • (seriously) try my best in school
  • (maybe) get rid of clutter
  • (maybe) do some more yoga
  • (maybe) watch a lot of movies
  • (maybe) save some money
  • (seriously) pet some cute dogs
  • (seriously) spend time with family
  • (maybe) make some cool art
  • (maybe) blog a lot
2014 was an absolute Stress Fest. I want 2015 to be a Stress Less. Things have started off relatively calm. I have been doing a tiny bit of redecorating. You can see my new comforter in the photo above. I got it from West Elm and I am obsessed. I'm also having a bit of a LOFT moment and hit their After-Christmas sale like a storm. Maybe 2015 will be the year I get everything awesome on sale. A girl can dream right?

Are you a New Years Resolution person?
Did you find anything good at the post-holiday sales?

  3. Hi Jess,

    I'm not really big on making new year's resolutions either! But I'm certainly into working on improvements, and just being a better person. I hope you have had an amazing year, and wishing you the best in 2015!
